I live in a very exposed part of Devon, on the edge of Dartmoor 960 ft above sea level, always windy and cold and snowy in winter.

I dont know about planting in the Spring, i always go on the fact that they sell them now,  so can be planted now. I have also planted the Blanda species too.

Maybe someone else will have some knowledge on this?.

I think you have remember that when you buy from mail order, they are going to show the plants in full bloom and colour.

I noticed on the other thread similar to this one, that some people semm to expect what they see in the photo, if you buy trees or perenials in the autumn as bare root, you are not going to get a plant like the photo.

Coments such as 'they looked like bits of dead root,'  is exactly what they will be but with a bit of TLC over winter, they will bloom When you plant them out next spring.

I have just planted mine, and soaked for a few hours though.

Usually, anything that is sold at any given time,can be planted when you get them,

What to do with nerine bulbs just received

Sounds like really sound advice to me.  I intend buying nerines, as they are great for autumn colour.  When is the best time to actually buy them, Lyn?

If you buy on line, they will supply them at planting time. which is about now.
